Bridge maintenance prompts weekend service change on LIRR's West Hempstead line

Some westbound trains on the Hempstead Branch of the Long Island Rail Roads will not stop at the Queens Village and Hollis stations this weekend, the railroad said.

The limited service, from Friday afternoon through Monday morning, is detailed in a special timetable on mta.info, the website of the MTA.

The limited service is due to bridge waterproofing work, the railroad said.

Riders on westbound Hempstead Branch trains traveling to Queens Village and Hollis stations will disembark at Bellerose Station for bus service to those stations, the railroad said.

Customers at the Queens Village and Hollis stations looking to travel westbound will be provided bus service to Jamaica for train service to points west, the railroad said.

Eastbound service will not be affected, the railroad said.
